Infiniti said today that it plans to reveal the all-new QX55, a coupelike SUV, Nov. 11. Nissan’s luxury brand revealed plans for the SUV a year ago at the 2019 Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance with a brushstroke rendering of a fastback profile.

Infiniti says the FX, a defunct performance-oriented SUV, inspired the QX55’s roofline and other visual elements. The FX lived for two generations —and under two model names, as the FX was renamed the QX70 — during the 2003-17 model years. Given the QX55’s name, Infiniti’s newest model may borrow underpinnings from the QX50, a compact SUV last redesigned for the 2019 model year.

In conjunction with the announcement, Infiniti released an image showing a profile view of the QX55’s rear end. It certainly fits the notion of a coupelike SUV, with a short, dramatically raked rear window concluding what appears to be the end of a descending roofline. Horizontal taillights stretch below the window pillar with some interesting, 3D interplay between various lighting components. A tailpipe appears to peek out the driver’s side of the lower bumper.

The QX55’s “provocative design will fuse the stance and versatility of a premium mid-size crossover with the sleek profile of a sports coupe,” Infiniti said in a statement today. The SUV will arrive at North American dealerships in the spring of 2021, it added.

Infiniti will reveal the SUV Nov. 11 at 5:55 p.m. PST. It said today that the SUV represents the first of “a wave of new products” to come — a welcome sign from a lineup with several models long overdue for redesigns.’s Editorial department is your source for automotive news and reviews.
